    Ever wanted a back light for your monitor? It helps with eye strain and glare from overhead lights. This is a simple back light you can install in 10 minutes and should cost less than $20. There are other (more expensive) LED shelf lights you can get from IKEA but I had an old one lying around I wasn’t doing anything with.

    First step is to take the shield off the light so it’s more even.
